About this product
- DescriptionThis magnificently written vel is imbued with subtle yet profound psychological insights of a calibre that arguably rivals Tolstoy's. Within, Phillipe Marcenat, an erudite yet conventional industrialist from central France, falls madly in love with and marries the beautiful but unreliable Odile - despite his family's disapproval. Soon, Phillipe's possessiveness and jealousy drive her away. Brokenhearted, Phillipe then marries the devoted and sincere Isabelle and promptly inflicts on his new wife the very same woes he endured at the hands of Odile.
